warriorprincess11 Posted July 8, 2022 Share Posted July 8, 2022 Hi there, nice to meet you all. I’m early in my lung cancer journey — was diagnosed at the end of May with NSCLC adenocarcinoma, a ~1.8cm tumor in my LLL and the involvement of two (hard to get to, maybe inoperable) lymph nodes. I’m 37, super fit and active and healthy, never been a smoker. Came as a total shock. I’m about halfway through my treatment plan: two cycles of 6 days each of cisplatin/etoposide, and 30 days of radiation. I may or may not have surgery afterward, this is up for debate right now. And may or may not do immunotherapy. I have a great team looking after me but I’m definitely scared about the future. My medical team insist they are treating me “with curative intent” and we’re going for a cure. I also tested positive for the ALK mutation — this doesn’t affect my treatment right now, but gives us nice targeted options “if needed” down the road. I’m working hard to stay positive through the ups and considerable downs. Appreciate all encouragement and tales of hope. Thank you!
